B1G1 is really proud of its projects, the people running them and the impact they have. The projects are continually reviewed in a number of ways. We not only review the financial status and the usage of the funds but we also review the on-going nature of the projects too. Projects sometimes are completed — their particular work is done. And projects may occasionally be paused too because they may be becoming ‘over-subscribed’. This doesn’t happen a lot, but it does happen occasionally.
This is why we created what we call Global Projects. Global Projects are a special category of B1G1 projects that help you make an even greater impact in our world.
What sets them apart from our ‘regular’ projects is that the Global Projects are not tied to any specific country or even Worthy Cause. Instead, when you give towards a Global Project, you are committing to make that impact anywhere in the world to a collection of projects.
It means that when you give to Global Projects you become insulated from the effects of changes because you are not just giving to one specific project. This way, your Giving Stories become stable and you can talk about them and print about them safely.
So to ensure the stability and sustainability of your Giving Stories, it’s a great idea to choose one of the current Global Projects.
